Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Poor Buckethead, he doesn't follow your musical doctrine. The boy is going to Hell for sure.
My musical doctrine?......ha ha ha, you've got to be kidding. Every time you try and pretend you know anything about music you implode, I just love it.

It's not MY doctrine it has to do with the history of the blues numbnuts. You can't have any kind of appreciation for an art form until you know the history. Blues got its origins from black slaves doing "call" and "response" out working in the fields. A 2 measure statement followed by a 2 measure answer. like "I've been working, sweatin all day"......(answer) "I've been working sweatin all day." 2 more bars of question and answer gets you 8 bars. then a 1 bar phrase and answer --"workin all day" (answer) "working all day" then another 1 bar phrase, followed by another. That a total of 12 bars. All blues are in this form unless its a hybrid form. Later the black musicians stole western or church harmonies to add to this form. They used the church cadences they heard I IV V I or C chord for 4 bars.... F chord for 4 bars......G chord for 2 bars.......and the cadence back to the C chord for 2 bars.

Isn't education a wonderful thing, so as you can see, It has nothing to do with MY doctrine but everything to do with the history of the art form.

LMAO!
Thanks for proving my point that atheists can only think of God as a human magician that's invisible.
FYI - You spelled invisible wrong.
Have you ever seen this God thing? If so please describe. If it's not in the image of a man, then what image is it in? If not magic then, can you describe the method by which this being created man, or anything else for that matter? If heaven is NOT up or in the sky, then where is it located?

You seem to go to great lengths to tell us what God ISN'T but nothing about what he is, why is that? Are you able to answer any of the 4 questions I posed? If you can't answer them then why can't you. This is a being you believe to be real, you shape your life around this being, and probably your children. You rely on him everyday, Christians will tell you they interact with him regularly, some will say they can't imagine living without him. For something this vital you should have some information about it, yes? I'm waiting!!!!!

I don't need an education in it. If I like it, I listen to it.

I'll let the snobs argue about how it is formed.

I'm a fan of Chris Barber, Mr. Acker Bilk, and Monty Sunshine. British trad. They played it better than the home boys.

Mr. Acker Bilk??????????The guy that can't get a sound out of the clarinet. He is known among musicians as the worst clarinet player of all times. Get some musicians together and at least one of them will do an Acker Bilk impress that will drop everyone to their knees!!!!! Holy shit have you NO taste whatsoever? Have you ever heard a really good clarinet player? If you have and still think Acker Bilk is good, then your tone deaf. I think I've finally figured you out, you're a tone deaf musical illiterate. That of course would answer a myriad of questions.

Atheism is a religious belief. It deals only with religion. It is a viewpoint of religion.
If I don't believe in anything supernatural, I have no religious belief.

I can't be bothered with it. Not any more than I can be bothered by belief in witches, or hexes, or ghosts, or mirror-breaking bringing bad luck, or astrology.

No belief in any of that stuff.

If you call that a religious belief, you are being dishonest.

Dude that would be bitching admit it!:))

But you make a good point Ronald Reagan's family don't wear necklaces with Alzheimer's on them do they? Dave wouldn't appreciate his family doing that I am sure.

Maybe I can give you a better analogy.
Let's say jesus came back today, and was accused, tried, convicted, and executed.
Would his followers now wear, on a necklace, instead of a cross, a syringe? Or a little gas chamber room? or a tiny chair with a little electric cord on it?

As a matter of fact, THIS is the song clarinet players use to mimic Acker Bilk. They play the melody so flat with a very wide vibrato, it hysterical. Years ago we use to have to play this on gigs, none of us could get through it, all we could hear was the horrible sound of Acker Bilk. I'd play until I burst of laughing, then someone else would take over until they could no longer play. And if one of the guys played clarinet and mimicked Acker Bilk, we were literally on the floor. Google The Portland Symphonia, if you like Acker Bilk, you'll just love these guys, ha ha ha ha !!!!

Let me guess.

Acker Bilk was more famous and made more money than those guys?
